Microstory 1898: There Was a Time When I Thought I’d Be Huge

There was a time when I thought I’d be huge
My words would be read all over the world
As it turns out, I’m nothing but a stooge
With my head low, like an achievemephobe

I say I’ve tried, but that’s not really true
I never put much effort into it
I queried agents, but only a few
I guess I thought I’d be an instant hit

But I see now, it’s time to get to work
To focus on the goals I hold most dear
To scratch and crawl myself out of the murk
And spread my voice beyond the blogosphere

I’ll still write here, and let you read for free
But I deserve to sometimes charge a fee
